Moto Z Play: The Third Moto Z Smartphone without a Flagship Price

After taking over Motorola, Lenovo had done something special this year by launching a different kind of modular smartphone hardware program. Being an ecosystem rather than just a smartphone containing lots of features, experts think that this could be somewhat promising. The latest Moto Z smartphone, the Moto Z Play also takes advantage of the company’s best technologies to offer their consumers. And just like Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid, the Mot Z Play doesn’t contain a flagship price either.

On the hardware side, experts easily pointed out that just like other smartphones in the same line, the Moto Z Play looks exactly like the first two. This is due to the fact that the company employs the same look and styling to smartphones belonging on the same platform. However, this one is thicker compared to Moto Z Force but still having the same shape and size.


Looking at the screen size, the Moto Z Play also features a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display that has an HD resolution and a 401 pixels-per-inch measurement. It basically runs in Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS installed on a 2GHz Snapdragon 625 chipset. Needless to say, this smartphone is capable of different connectivity features such as Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and 4G LTE. It’s interesting to know that the analog headphone jack is located a few centimeters away from the USB Type-C port, which makes it more convenient for handling. And unlike Force Droid’s layout, the Moto Z Play’s design is smoother and ridge-free. Compared than before, using this one is more convenient, especially if you want to listen to some music and charging your smartphone at the same time. The reason behind Lenovo’s decision to return this one is maybe a part of their smartphone marketing strategy.


All in all, having the Moto Z play is definitely a must-have in your wish list.
